Seen taking on the Wingmakers' John Davies, Saints' John Lawless had a field day against Airbus in the away fixture
TNS v Airbus UK
Welsh Premier League
Sat 8 Feb 2005: Home - Treflan

SAINTS could be forgiven for feeling the pressure as the games come thick and fast, but at least the visit of strugglers Airbus UK offers hope of three league points.
Rooted bottom of the Welsh Premier League, the Wingmakers had found it hard to get their campaign to take off since arriving in the top flight this season.
But TNS manager Ken McKenna will be taking nothing for granted as Rob Lythe's men approach Treflan.
"Everyone expects you to win these type of games and that in itself creates pressure," he said.
"Airbus have improved and we certainly won't be taking them lightly as they need the points just as much as us."
Winners of the Cymru Alliance by a massive 19 points last season, the Wingmakers' plight highlights the increasing difficulty of making the transition from the feeder leagues into the Premier.
Airbus flattered to deceive with a 1-0 opening day win away to Newtown at Latham Park, but since then it has been an uphill struggle, with goals at a premium.
The Broughton outfit had to wait until the end of January for their second success, a 3-1 home win against Port Talbot. Lythe has consistently tried to strengthen his side, as he realises the gulf in class he has to bridge, and the arrival of Simon Andrews from perennial feeder club Christleton has sparked a revival.
Skipper John Leah is set to return for TNS after missing the cup game against Bangor City.
